For my blog hop creation I used the cute 'Happy Little Gnome' by Meljens Designs.

I colored with my Copics and Prisma Pencils. The sentiment is from the new Film Strip Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs and cut out with the new matching Film Strip Die from the Whimsy Shapeology Collection.  DP is from MME's Magnolia collection. The large flowers is from Recollections and the brwon cherry blossoms are available at Whimsy Buds . Border punch used is a MS punch and the ribbon, buttons and charm are from my stash.


Here's a close-up on the happy little gnome.


One last side view.
The sketch I used is this weeks sketch over at Sketch Saturday.
So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Deb's blog.

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release!

Hugs,
